Lessons

I am not currently accepting new students.

I teach children and adults of all ages piano, violin, guitar, ukulele, and mandolin. I strive to give each of my students exposure to many different composers, styles of music, music theory concepts, and notation. While all of that is important in learning to play an instrument, I find it's equally important to discover how fun it is to play an instrument. So we play lots of games and have opportunities throughout the year to play in front of other people. I hope, more than anything, that my students discover the joy of music.

  PRICING

A half hour lesson is $25. If there are 3 people in your household who are taking lessons, I offer a price break of $60 for three half hour lessons.

Lesson fees can be paid in cash, check, or through Venmo or Paypal and can be paid at each lesson or in a lump sum monthly. Checks can be made out to “Sarah Huber”. My Venmo handle is "bornstringed".

  OTHER INFO

I teach beginning piano, violin, guitar, ukulele, and mandolin. For young students (kindergardeners and first graders) who want to study music but don't know yet what instrument they'd like to learn, we can do what I like to call music exploration, where we spend a few weeks at the piano learning about the musical alphabet, a few weeks with hand drums learning about rhythm, and a few weeks with ukuleles learning about chords. Depending on the student, after a year at most I would encourage them to choose an instrument to focus on.

Students (and their parents) should plan on weekly lessons and regular practice at home. I typically encourage students to practice 5 days a week for 20-30 minutes. But you know what? 5 or 10 minutes is better than 0 minutes. What matters is that they practice and that they practice regularly. Make it a part of the weekly schedule. It's that important.
